          Holy ****. A lot of people around campus suspected the relationship wasn't nearly as serious as it was made out to be, but this takes it to a whole new level and then some.

            Someone wrote in the comments:

            Erm, that's because she was registered under her real name, Lennay Marie Wochinski. Lennay Marie Kekua was her professional name.

              There is no way this is true... Deadspin is a great "Sports Blog"... But I'd be shocked, SHOCKED if this is completely true. Manti would know it would be found out... as well as his family. I'm going to let this one fully play out before I form an opinion.

                I remember when it first happened it was reported to be a close friend, not his girlfriend.

                  FWIW, I've seen acquaintances do stupid stuff like start relationship with "girls" they've met online through things like MMOs... "relationships" that go on for years without actually meeting. Is he really stupid enough to get conned?

                  This is the craziest thing I've read in forever.

                            We all know how reliable sources Twitter and Facebook are to provide true journalistic integrity and accuracy (see: the Connecticut school shootings), so I have to take this with a huge grain of salt. Although there definitely seem to be some inconsistencies in the whole story, relying on social media to authenticate a theory is not overly convincing in my book.
                            I'm too drunk to taste this chicken.

                                  Jeez. Just heard this on the Score. Thought they would say something like he hadn't visited her or called her and her family was angry that Teo got so much attention... But she never existed????

                                    I can't imagine deadspin wouldn't be sure before publishing. Writing stuff like this without being completely sure has to put you in some legal trouble.

                                    Funnier than you in 2012.

                                      I'm hoping this is correct.

                                      I think it's more likely Manti was hoaxed by a person via the Internet than Manti hoaxed the rest of the world.

                                          If it is even 5% wrong, dragging Te'os name through the mud and using the death of someone for clicks should warrant a public flogging. Have people no shame?

                                            I really, really doubt Deadspin would run an article this lengthy without sourcing the hell out of it and being sure they're correct. Would be straight libelous if untrue and they'd get hit with a HUGE lawsuit.

                                                    Manti could go from being America's sweetheart to really, really hated. Depending on how the media spins this.

                                                                            I do remember the first ESPN article to post on it said they were in a close relationship. Not GF.

But is Deadspin at the end saying that Manti might possibly be a homosexual and that he was trying to cover it up with this story. Once again I'm not sure, but from the comments that is how some are reading it. Please don't Neg Rep if I'm wrong... Just very confused

                                                                                          I wont believe it until it's vetted either. Deadspin isn't the bar for integrity in sports journalism. Furthermore, if this story is true, I find it bizarre that Deadspin is the first to report it.

                                                                                          I'm going to see how this thing plays out before jumping to conclusions.

Not saying I, nor any of us, SHOULD HAVE caught it, but looking back I do think there are some things that seemed weird even at the time. Also, the media looks just as bad as Manti in this for running with the story with verifying any of it.

                                                                                                  Honestly this is the strangest thing I've ever heard of.
